Israeli Arab Higher Committee initiates protests

 The High Follow-Up Committee for Arab Citizens of Israel, an umbrella organization representing Israeli-Arabs at the national level, says that the latest developments demonstrate the strategic alliance between President Trump, Prime Minister Netanyahu and the reactionary Arab regimes.

The committee initiated a number of protest steps during a Nazareth meeting Thursday.

Protest vigils will take place in Arab villages and at major intersections, with the largest protest in Wadi Ara on Saturday night.

The committee intends to send a delegation to meet with Palestinians in Eastern Jerusalem.

A protest demonstration will take place Tuesday opposite the American Embassy in Tel Aviv and another protest will take place during the Deputy Foreign Secretary's visit to the Knesset Monday.
